Pilot Opens Multi-Client Warehouse in Salt Lake City

Pilot’s newest multi-client warehouse is now operating in Salt Lake City, providing a gateway for West Coast distributions. The 44,000-square-foot facility is designed to give clients of all sizes and scope in the West Coast market the ability to store, distribute and manage transportation operations, all under Pilot’s trusted name. According to Steve Bullard, vice president, logistics services, Salt Lake City is an ideal West Coast distribution location for several reasons, including a desire to better service customers in the e-commerce sector, an area of significant growth for Pilot during the last three quarters. “Many companies are now moving warehouse operations out of California due to internal tax and cost implications of distributing e-commerce product from there,” he says. SLC is also geographically located to support 2-day deliveries to most of the western U.S., and Pilot’s multi-client warehouse is supported by ground, air and parcel capacity as well.
